AR: Bill to ban sex offenders from some Halloween activities dealt setback in committee vote

Senate Bill 10 — sponsored by Sen. Trent Garner, R-El Dorado, and Rep. Rebecca Petty, R-Rogers — was knocked down by the committee after a lengthy discussion, but the vote was expunged, allowing its sponsors an opportunity to present it again later.

SB10 would bar a person required to register under the Sex Offender Registration Act of 1997 and who is assessed as a level 3 or level 4 offender from distributing treats to a child or from wearing a mask or other costume as part of a Halloween-related event. Full Article

    Yea, wow. I’m glad it didnt go through, although on the other hand it would have been another law to lobby that registration is no longer merely administrative.

    It’s too bad they dont focus on the number one killer of kids on Halloween… cars…

    Man, this article perfectly highlighted how politicians just throw crap at walls to see what sticks so they can pad their resume. “Did you know data showed there’s no increase of offenses during Halloween?” “Uh… I haz no numbers. I don’t knowz. But we needz it! Think of the childrenz!!!”

    Falsely creating such legislature to the contrary of facts should be a illegal as falsely reporting a crime. Until politician heads start rolling for this blatant BS, nothing will change.

    Affirmative disability and restraint as intent from the very start. Duh Mr. Judge!
    Note: If is the registry ITSELF being used, and not conviction.

  4. Eric

    This has to be discrimination. A law blanketing everyone in a category regardless of offense or risk, meanwhile not applied to any other category of crime.
